No skills, looking for a job: Teen's funny resume

A FIFTEEN-year-old Chancellor State College student has penned a quirky, brilliantly honest resume in a bid to land himself his first job.

Connor Gerard, who will begin Year 10 when school resumes this month, wrote of his goals, to gain some world experience, and also nab that Xbox game he had his eyes on.

Brutally honest about his skill-set, Connor managed to set himself out from the crowd, and hoped to land himself a job thanks to the innovative CV.

"I'm not here to waste your time and tell you about all my fabulous credentials - the truth is don't have any yet - I'm 15 with no unbelievably awesome skills or university degrees," his resume reads.

"This is my first time off the block and I'm just a kid looking for his first job."

With local radio and TV also getting on board Connor's campaign, we hope it's only a matter of time until the motivated teenager is snapped up by an employer.

Are you looking for a young vibrant hard working and reliable junior?

CONNOR GERARD

is exactly the kid that you need. .

 

Dear Sir / Madam

Dad has given me the drill that it's time for me to get my first job, and he's right. This year as I head into year ten at Chancellor State College it is time for me to pop my head out into the real world and gain some experience and make some money of my own to buy that Xbox game Id love to get.

I'm not here to waste your time and tell you about all my fabulous credentials - the truth is don't have any yet - I'm 15 with no unbelievably awesome skills or university degrees, This is my first time off the block and I'm just a kid looking for his first job.

If it helps I can tell you that I come from great family - we all work really hard and I know what it takes to work with people - I have to clean the kitchen my step sister and that's a challenge! If I can work with her I can work with anyone. This may show you that I can work extremely well with others without any threat of violence.

I'm happy to pack bags  be a check out chick - fetch coffee, shine shoes or pick up laundry' and will work for 'next to nothing' just to be around professionals in the industry so I can learn as much as I can.

Thanks so much for taking a moment to read about me - my details are attached and I'd love to come in for a trial run if you will have me.

Yours in great hope

Connor Gerrard
